Nigerian Authorities Arrest More Pro-Biafra Women

Fifteen more women, who are alleged to be members of the Indigenous People of Biafra group, appeared in an Owerri magistrate's court and are being held at an Owerri federal prison. This brings the number of women in custody to 127. The Biafra people have been lobbying for their independence from Nigeria for many years, and has seen several leaders including Nnamdi Kanu, arrested and imprisoned.
